I can't install plex either. Fresh Ubuntu Desktop install of 18.04.02 and using PG version 8.5.6.

I get this error:

I attempted a wipe and reinstall, and now I can't install 8.5.4 either - errors relating to Docker not running. I'm not sure what to do.

I'm running a dedicated local server on Intel Xeon hardware, 32 Gigs of RAM and a 512 Gb SSD. Unknown how to solve this problem as it's likely a bug in either the install script or one of the repos it's pulling from.

I just wiped my drive completely, installed a fresh copy of 18.04 LTS, ran the 'Long Update' command from the 'Install PGBlitz' page, rebooted, and then ran the 'Method 1' install command, no issues.

I then ran "sudo plexguide", selected 8.5.6, and I get a few permissions warnings "The directory '/home/nachobel/.cache/pip/http' or its parent directory is not owned by the current user and the cache has been disabled. Please check the permissions and owner of that directory. If executing pip with sudo, you may want sudo's -H flag." These are yellow/amber so do not seem significant. As stated, this is a fresh install so errors here must be in Ubuntu's install configuration? Unknown.

The install continues, and towards the end I received the following error as PGUI attempts to deploy:

---edit well boys, looks like this might have been a temp fluke or cleaned up. It appears to be working now. Will report back.

---edit 2: attempting to install Plex brings the following (same as above)
fatal: [127.0.0.1]: FAILED! => {"changed": true, "cmd": "cat /var/plexguide/plex.claim", "delta": "0:00:00.005037", "end": "2019-02-25 23:37:18.319539", "msg": "non-zero return code", "rc": 1, "start": "2019-02-25 23:37:18.314502", "stderr": "cat: /var/plexguide/plex.claim: No such file or directory", "stderr_lines": ["cat: /var/plexguide/plex.claim: No such file or directory"], "stdout": "", "stdout_lines": []}

The only thing I've deployed is PGBlitz, nothing else.

---edit 3: I had a Plex data backup, so I restored and then attempted install. Same error as above.

downgrade to 8.5.4; it doesn't come up for mine either. I'll have to see what the change is. One of the org members mentioned changing plex, but i don't have the current time to look back at the code and review. I'll restore the changes back if there were some made.

I got the same results on a local Ubuntu 18.04 desktop. Plex local appears to install but when you check nothing appears to be there.

I'll check again when back. Had to reverse a commit. Local edition is within your network, remote edition is when your server is outside the network as a note.

My plex is working but when I restore the data it doesn’t work anymore, it says in Portainer it can’t cinnect to localhost. I’m gonna play with it when I get home but a fresh install works so I can just rescan if I have to.

I finally got hardlinking in Arr working so I’m super excited about that! Also I figured out how to add volumes in Portainer so my setup is just about perfect for my hardware.

Now all I need to do is figure out DelugeVPN and also how to point two domain names at the same install and I’m golden :D

that can be bad at times because the vpn can be a choke hold at times. the vpn really makes sense if your doing torrents.

Yeah, I've got an all newsgroup setup now but just want to look at adding torrents. Ideally I can do a VPN on a per-docker basis, rather than hold my entire rig hostage :D
